LANDLORDS across Scotland could end up with heavy fines because they have not been given enough information about the need to provide Energy Performance Certificates on their properties, according to one of the country’s leading letting agents.
Braemore Property Management has said that many private landlords are still unaware of the new legislation over EPCs and could be fined after January 4, when the certificates become compulsory on every property put up for let.
Says a spokesperson: “Under the rules, any property that is rented out will need to have an Energy Performance Certificate – which will be made available to tenants at the outset of a new tenancy. The move means that prospective tenants will be given details of the energy efficiency and environmental impact of any property they are considering renting.”
